It was a very great experience while learning.Good Tutors as well good tone of speaking.I really liked the course and looking forward for more courses.
Give me the way to tackle data collection and analysis with Twitter, YouTube, and Yelp. It learns me to process and visualize of social media data.

I didnt like that the codes were available for us to just run. Sometimes, the code can very depending on what software version you have, which happened to me. So i had to figure out which lines were having trouble or what was wrong with the code.
I was looking forward to learn how to code to get information from social media, which I didn't. I just copied and pasted the code. And if I wanted to repeat that, change some things or do something different, i don't know how. I didn't learn to code for social media.

Was very disappointed by this course after being very excited about it. I don't know if I over estimated my tech savy for an "intermediate" level. I'm not a programmer in anyway, but the course descriptions doesn't seem to imply that students need to be super knowledgeable with that. I thought I'd be fine with an intermediate level since I don't mind alittle research to figure things out if need be and have done some HTML/CSS coding. However, with the information given in this course and hardly any explanation about how to set up systems/packages needed to complete the assignments, the course should be marked as "advanced". In addition to the install "X" and run "Y" with minimal to no guidance on how to do that, links on the course don't work and the few steps the instructor actually does take you through to set up a developer account on Twitter to get the "keys" you need for an assignment is done on an old page layout that is completely different now and highly confusing to figure out especially when trying to follow the instructor.
Overall huge waste of time and money and hugely disappointed with coursera for offering this course as is and the instructor for the also obvious lack of presence. On the student discussion page there were several other students who were having the same problems as me and they either got no reply or only responses/help from other students.
I was really excited to get to learn some basic data analytics skills especially using social media/Twitter which is so fun. Instead I didn't even finish the course as it wasn't worth hours of frustration to me trying to figure out advanced coding to get the assignments to work. I hope this saves anyone who is a beginner with data analytics from doing this course. If you have only a little bit of programming knowledge, find a beginner course and don't pay for this one!

This is the only Coursera Couse that I would say was a complete waste of my time. The material is severely out of date, the lectures are poorly structured and even the video/audio quality is low. There are other courses on this website that deal with this topic, don't waste your time on this one.

Lack of explanation, not updated and hard to understand.

It was very interesting and very helpful to NLP students

Very good learn the social media and sentiment analysis

This course was very helpful

Overall its a good course but a very basic one. You get to know about data scraping and the basic analysis which needs to be done on the datasets. Last two weeks is kind of interesting where the instructor provides more info about the sentiment analysis and the visualization. Good course overall cheers!!

The course gives an overall exposure about the subject. The focus could be tighten into one program, and there could be more readings/videos about the idea how social media data should be analyzed or interpreted. Yet, the course has too much attention to tools (R and Python).

Obviously I learned something from this course, thanks to Dr. Chirag Shah. Unfortunately, there are some parts of this course that needs to be improved, i.e broken link, the mistake in video, and more importantly is how you deliver a structured material. Good luck then.

Tips you into the direction of great resources, but sometimes lacks in the explanations, leaving most code not explained. Not a deal breaker, and a worthy introduction but a more detailed explanation at times would help.

The course is a great for a start in the social media data analytics. The teacher explains the content very well. My rating is four stars because I found expired links and a file with R code that did not compile.
por Eriko S•
This course provided a good introduction to understanding the fundamentals of data analytics and visualization for social media. I definitely feel like I've learned a lot!

There should be an option that allows you to pass peer assignment reviews if there are no more submitted assignments. Maybe let us review past submissions instead?
por Petra B•
The course material should be provided on coursera itself. Instead of having to download a 1.8GB dataset from yelp, the two files could have been shared here.

En general esta muy bien para empezar, aunque, algunos codigos no estan completos, sirve de incentivo para la autodidactica.
por Vaibhav S•
Interesting course, could have added a bit more on how to write basic scripts or more ways of social media analytics
por Dung D L•
The knowledge is great. But I've had to wait for too long for my cert because of the peer-to-peer review

Thought could have had dived in-depth. Was a good Course for beginners
